Outro Of The Literary Black Sheep Pt. 2 by Saven "Con-A" Watts is a collection of poems that shine with energy, raw honesty, wit, and life. The messages in the poems read loud and clear: Strive ahead and never give up, regardless of background or circumstance. The urgency pulses through the lines as if Watts is desperate to get his experiences and meaningful poems out to the masses, in order to shine a light or make a difference. It's about choices and consequences, and how the ball is always in your court. They read like rap lyrics in a way, with tension and power, but are still decidedly poems. He speaks of street life, people he knows and knew, and the good times and the bad that surround all of that. But the message is to prevent heartache, crime, prison, a wasted life, or dying too young.
If you like poems that reflect society, culture, and everyday people in need of a wake-up call, these poems will speak that language to you. He laments misguided youth, a life of crime, and a bleak future, and promises a brighter future if you just consider the cost. He urges the young to think about their choices and what lies ahead, using today's fresh, relevant language, imagery, and cultural references. He asks readers to take a look at injustice in the world, from those wrongly incarcerated to those that willfully take life and to those in prisons of their own making. If you like poetry with religious overtones, you'll find plenty of it here, with strong language and a challenge to take responsibility for your actions. Outro Of The Literary Black Sheep Pt. 2 by Saven "Con-A" Watts is a short volume of poetry that will make a big impact on readers.
